The Green Left is a partypolitically independent council group for all green-left students in Turku University. For us, the student union should focus both on lobbying and services. That’s why for us preserving the student magazine of Turku, maintaining a versatile field of organisations and actively searching and maintaining spaces for them and students are central goals. On the lobbying side we oppose study fees, narrow study paths and commercialization of science and university.
In our vision every student has excellent and wide opportunities to develop themselves as a professional in their respective fields. The student union is an important organisation that makes the students voice heard both within the university community as well as wider in the surrounding world. The student union makes every students study time unique and ensures that students time in the university is rich and trouble-free both during lectures and free time.

Green list is the advocate for equality, transparency and sustainable development in the Student Union!
We are uncommitted to any political party, and we are known as an active group, that faithfully defends student culture. During this term we have e.g. taken the floor for the new student space Q-house and protested the sudden cuts from Student Theater's grants. In our university of dreams, even small student organizations have resources to work, the Student Union will firmly stand up for student rights and the university will both offer quality education as well as take care of the environment.
Our group decisions are made monthly in meetings, which are open to all those who ran in the council elections on our list. We consist of students from almost all faculties. Come along and join us!

Humanistilista is a politically unaffiliated group representing students mostly in the Faculty of Humanities on all campuses. We value transparency and communication with all the other council groups. In our opinion listening to everyone’s point of view gives the best and the most efficient results in our common causes. In the spirit of humanism we want to make our student union a little better and more accessible for each and every one of us while hearing everyone out. Keeping our student culture vivid and alive while protecting it is something we are known for, alongside with openness.

Oikeat is a centre-right list that includes National Coalition Party members and independent nominees also. Our values are i.a. freedom, responsibility, education and equal opportunity. Students are individuals for us with various needs and hopes. Students are not any kind of faceless mass and should not be treated such. We have wide possibilities to influence via our cooperation network in Turku and at the national level. We really want a better student union for all of us!
